    Re: only divers wore diving watches in the 70's ?

    Bought a Seiko 6309 in 1978 as I'd had just had my, only other watch at the time, a Citizen automatic, "serviced" for the 3rd or 4th time because I'd forgotten to take it off before a bath/shower,...

    Re: Watch spotting - TV show: Castle

    Ummm... ya, I did say it was a Speedmaster. :scratch:

    And yes, it is on a black strap. I wonder how they picked the Speedmaster as "THE" watch to use. One of the writers a WIS? Though I do...

    Re: would you list watches in your c.v?

    I mentioned once on a CV that I made plastic models, and years later it turns out that's why I got the job - the professor was looking for someone to do micro-surgery on mice, and figured that hobby...

    Re: Habring Sighting...

    The one "new" Rolex I would consider buying and wearing would be the Explorer I at 36mm. Now, if someone were to give me a Seadweller... well, I wouldn't want to hurt their feelings. :lol:
